Pakistani player spewed venom about Umran Malik, said – like him…
Umran Malik has cemented his place in Team India in a short span of time.
The whole world has become crazy about the fast bowling of the Indian pacer.
New Delhi. India has given many fast bowlers to world cricket before but no one came like Umran Malik. This pure fast bowler of tall stature can bowl continuously at a speed of 150 kilometers per hour. 23-year-old Umran is bowling exceptionally well for his age. Veterans Dale Steyn, Brett Lee and Wasim Akram have also become admirers after seeing Umran’s fast bowling. Pakistan’s fast bowler Sohail Khan has given a strange statement about Umran. Sohail says that of course Umran is a promising player but there are plenty of bowlers like him in Pakistan’s domestic cricket.
Umran Malik, who made his international debut in June last year, has played 16 international matches for India so far, including 8 ODIs and 8 T20s. Umran has taken a total of 24 wickets in his name. Umran Malik, who plays for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the IPL, is also the coach of the franchise, Dale Steyn. Former Australia pacer Brett Lee has even compared him to Ferrari.

‘I can count you 12-15 names’
Sohail Khan said in The Nadir Ali Podcast, ‘I think Umran Malik is a good bowler. I have seen his 1-2 matches. He runs fast and pays attention to other things too. But if you think of 150-155 kmph bowlers, I can name 12 to 15 players who play tape-ball cricket at the moment. If you go to the trials organized by Lahore Qalandars, you will find many players. There are many like him (Umran Malik). We are full of domestic cricket.
‘Nobody worked as hard as Shoaib Akhtar’
Umran Malik has bowled the ball at a speed of 156 km in the series against Sri Lanka. Now Shoaib Akhtar’s record seems to be in danger. On the other hand, Sohail says that Akhtar’s speed record of 163.3 kmph cannot be broken by humans. According to Sohail, ‘The only thing that can break Shoaib Akhtar’s record is the bowling machine. Human cannot do this. The reason for this is Shoaib’s hard work. Which no one has done. He used to do 32 rounds in a week whereas I could complete only 10 rounds.
